First things first, if you want to read my blog posts now, I have a new blog site, Illinois Attorneys Blog. Well, it's probably new to you, but I've been writing it for a while without promotion.
I'm not blogging here anymore for a few reasons. The biggest is that they took away the stipend for writers earlier in the year. It was only $50 a month and realistically the money didn't make a difference in my life. That said, I advise others not to work for free and would be hypocritical if I agreed to continue writing without compensation. The Tribune is a huge media company and while I admire them giving a platform for writers, they monetize that platform but don't share it with the writers any more.
So unless the urge strikes me or I have something to write about that would only make sense here, I won't be doing it any more. If you have any legal questions you can reach me for free through www.illinoislawyers.com or by phone at 312-346-5320.
